I just concocted this delicious green smoothie so I thought I’d quickly type up the recipe for you all to try and enjoy. This smoothie is quite sweet and tastes just like a banana thick shake (although you can make it thinner with extra milk or water). If you don’t like your drinks too sweet, maybe skip the dates and taste test it… if not sweet enough add them in one at a time till you’ve got the sweetness you like.

Ingredients:

1.5 generous handfuls of baby spinach (fresh or frozen)
1 medium banana (fresh or frozen – well ripe is best)
10 raw cashews
1.5 tablespoons flax meal (ground up linseed – this ingredient is optional)
2/3 cup soy milk (or more if you want)
2 inch slice of fresh pineapple (skin and core removed)
3 raw dates (pips removed)
1/3 cup water (or more – to achieve desired thickness)
1 tbsp muesli mix

Method:

In a high powered blender place all ingredients (except water and dates) and blend until smooth – there should be no fibrous “bits”

If consistency is too thick, add the water until you achieve the thickness you like. (you can opt to add more soy milk if you prefer). Taste test.. is it sweet enough? If not, add the dates until you’re happy with the flavour.

Pour into glass, sprinkle spoon full of muesli on top, and drink.  YUM YUM.

  • This recipe provides you with a good dose of greens (calcium, vitamin K), lots of fibre (because you blended the whole fruits and veg right into the drink), omega 3 (from the flaxmeal) and heaps of vitamins, healthy fats and minerals. Now you’re ready to face the day!

      thanks for the lovely comment. I love food too! 😛
      The Coffee Rolls look really nice, and could easily be converted to “vegan”. If anyone would like me to post a vegan version of that recipe, let me know and I’ll hop to it.
